Fifth grader charged after bus fight over snack cake

Greensboro, North Carolina-AP -- A North Carolina fifth-grader has been charged with assault for knocking out a boy in a school bus fight over a snack cake.

The principal of Cone Elementary School in Greensboro says nine-year-old Kevin Logan had skipped breakfast and when he got on the bus, he began eating a Little Debbie Zebra Cake, because he was hungry. According to the principal, when the boy sitting next to him asked for a bite, Kevin said no and was smacked in the face with a stuffed Tweety Bird. Kevin hit back, but was slammed against a window and hit in the back. Then he fell in the aisle and was stomped.

School officials say when the bus driver pulled the aggressor off him, Kevin was unconscious.

He was treated at a hospital for minor injuries and released.

His mother says he loves Zebra Cakes, but says it's a shame "it got to this point over something like that."
